Makes 6 large pancakes. These are very filling!
Stir twice, and add 1/4 cup (or more) any liquid you usually use (soy milk is what I use, some people like apple juice). Stir. Eat.

- Black and Red Lentil ChiliThis is probably the fastest chili I’ve ever made without using canned beans. The secret is black beluga lentils, which cook quickly and keep their shapes, giving this chili a very hearty texture.
